Beach Please | Part 1

Bikini top: c/o HERE| Bikini bottom: c/o HERE
Sunnies: Old| Earrings: BaubleBar| Lippie: 01 lip stain by Sephora

Is it okay to crush on yourself sometimes?😍 When I went through the photos taken from a recent outing at the beach, I was thinking to myself,
'Girl, you aren't doing too bad '! 😅😅😅 
I've had a full figure my entire adult life. I embrace it. 
This does not mean:
I don't make a concerted effort to make health conscious decisions when it comes to what I eat or whether or not to engage in physical exercise. 
It means:
I don't loathe my body. 
try to fully appreciate and focus on the many wonderful things about my body (type/color/and size) and how full functionality of it allows me to enjoy my life.  
With that said, it has been several years since I shot a swimsuit look for the blog (recently I've shared occasional shots in swimwear while on vacation on Instagram). Why? Honestly, I had to think about the answer to that question. After a bit of thought, I realized that there were several contributing factors, all of them past tense, none of which I'll bore you with, at least not today! LOL! 
Besides, isn't it clear that my upper thighs were in serious need of a tan?! 😉
This two piece leopard print bikini is a winner for those of us endowed with ample curves! I was a bit worried that the bikini top would not properly support my girls - I was wrong! The cup measurements are a perfect match to my frame (I ordered size 14). Not only that, the halter tie made it easy to adjust the extent of support provided. The high waist bikini bottom is also a great fit (size 14), it is not too tight or too loose.
I opted to style the set with a headwrap because I didn't fancy windswept, frizzed out, monster-size hair- LOL! 
Stay tuned to the blog for more looks that I shot at the beach!
Until next time,
Xx
